Laura Thompson, founder and teacher for the St. Regis Dance Club, stated, "We are taking collections, because we have to pay for our own stage." In the previous years, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino had donated their stage for the event. Laura Thompson and her team of volunteers work hard to make sure every child that walks into their dance class has the opportunity to learn and perform. The dance club is run by donations and fundraising, and the community of Akwesasne has always been great at supporting the St. Regis Dance Club. The St. Regis Dance Club stated on their program, "A special thanks to Akwesasne Employment Resource Center, Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort, Community Health Program, DJ Tray Benedict, Midnight Confetti, Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe and to the Dance Club Parents. Also, a big shout out to everyone who helped us fundraise throughout our dance season."
